I prefer the jazzier, less "spacey/feedback" Darkstars and so, in order of preference:

12/31/78
Farewell to Winterland...perfect Dark Star w/Other One sandwiched in between...jazzy, mellow, exploratory, and gorgeous Garcia vocals.

1/10/79 http://www.archive.org/details/gd79-01-10.gatto.kempka.307.sbeok.shnf
Most underrated DarkStar ever...part of a great overall show that also features a Top 3 Shakedown and Miracle.

7/14/84 Greek Theater encore. What an encore.

11/11/73 Despite the brief Phil weirdness section this one is deserving of its legendary status. A jazz masterpiece in many ways, and floats like a dream. Spills out into a beautiful "Eyes of the World."
